to move forward. >> well, father and son with us now. delaware attorney beau biden. thanks for joining us. general, let's talk about the democratic base and the president now in wisconsin telling rolling stone it's irresponsible to sit out the election. the vice president, your dad has no apologies for talking about the winers in manchester, new hampshi hampshire. what do you think the challenge is for democrats? >> to get out the vote. it's as simple as that. i can speak best to delaware. we have 47% of the state registered democrats. the challenge for me and chris and john is to get out the vote in the state of delaware. you will see that happen. i can speak to what's going on in our little state and others can speak better to what's going nationally. that's what we are doing. chairman is coming tonight in conjunction with my dad to penn state and the president at wisconsin. that's what you are seeing happen right now. democrats rallying to present america a choice. there is a stark choice. >> even in delaware, people are affected by the nbc "wall street journal" poll. 70% of those ques
out and shall enjoy covering very much. joining us for this big primary night is chris matthews, host of "hardball." and lawrence o'donnell. the host of the soon to debut last word with lawrence o'donnell. thanks. i really appreciate it. let me ask you this. you think no question the republican party finds a by to fall in love with her and get behind her? >> they have to. i already saw a letter from the senate republican campaign committee. they've already gotten excited about her. they are going to do what they have to do. i think you pointed out rather correctly, you notice the fact that the defeated republican candidate didn't endorse her tonight. so that bit of fence mending has yet to be done and it may not be done. i would have been shocked if she had gotten 40% tonight. up until late today, in fact, well into the evening, the establishment types from delaware were saying, this isn't going to happen. this is a shattering upset. there is no doubt about it. nobody expected it. they were talking 60% for castle late this afternoon. they assumed they had her well in hand. and look wh
and exceeding in high levels. don't tell me that these issues are going to stop us from succeeding. we can no longer make excuses in america for the appalling failure we're seeing in so many of our school systems across the country. >> is mark zuckerberg going to be hands-on with money he's handing off? >> he said clearly, i'm a business leader, i'm not an education specialist. i want to put the money in, i'm going to hold you accountable for the results we discussed, but he's not going to be in the mix. he's a great man who said my business i hire great leaders to get the job done. i found the city, he thought and the governor, frankly, committed to my values and he believes he can bring it home. he's not from newark. he has no relationship to our city but a lot of things of newark he believed, leadership at the state level, city level, also the local level, signs of success that we've had, innovations go on that are already extraordinary, that he wanted to be involved with. >> you heard the mayor of new york city take on teacher union say we are going to eliminate tenure, base it on meri
. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh
much in new mexico for us. >>> to one of the stories we're following all this week. one of the critical issues facing the public education today. the growing number of students who quit school even before graduating. a child drops out of school every 11 seconds. that's right. five kids will drop out of school in the united states before we finish reading this guest introduction. a quarter of u.s. students do not graduate from high schools. the class of 2009 dropouts will cost the united states $335 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivit productivity. today on msnbc, two of the most outspoken foot soldiers on education colin powell and his wife talk about the crisis. listen. >> 70% of the youngsters in the cohea coert will not be accepted into the army because they don't have a high school education or even with a high school education, they can't pass our basic, entry-level exam. >> no one entity can take care of all of these needs. it takes all of us saying it takes a village. it takes a village, it takes a community. >> joining us as part of our education nation coverage. execut
especially against the homeland. senator joe lieberman joins us now. senator, thanks so much. what is the level of threat to the homeland as it was described by janet napolitano? what are your concerns and how well do you think they're doing to guard against it? >> right, good to be with you again. >> you, too. >> this was our third annual hearing on the evolving nature of the terrorist threat o our homeland, and what we're doing about it and we look back at the year past, it's clear from all the information we have that the pace of attacks against our homeland has increased that more of the attacks are coming from organizations that are loosely connected to al qaeda but are not al qaeda and that more and more american citizens are part of those attacks, so that the war with the islamic extremists and terrorists that is global is being brought by our enemy much more here at home and it's a warning to the american people, i'd say the agencies before us, homeland security, fbi, national counterterrorism center, and all of the people who work for them are doing an extraordinarily good
, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that
>>> tensions running high in europe right now over fears of a possible tror attack and is the u.s. at risk, too? >>> plus, a super soaker. tropical depression number 16 dwumping on a ton of rain on florida right now and then expected to head right up the east coast. >>> bristol palin's ex meets our own lawrence o'donnell. this one you want to see, believe me. >>> good wednesday morning, i'm chris jansing. live from msnbc world headquarters in new york. well, with the potential republican takeover of congress breathing down his neck, a newly energized and clearly fired up president obama is back on the road and he's got an awful lot at stake. this is the barack obama that fired up an electorate and took the white house. >> the prediction among the pundits is, this is going to be a blood letting for democrats. that's what they're saying in washington. we can't let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future and i'm going to get throughout and fight as hard as i can and i know you are, too
it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> let's play har hard. good evening. i'm chuck todd in for chris matthews. today may be remembered as the day american politics jumped the shark. when steven colbert came to testify before congress about the plight of migrant farm workers, he did so in character. it's not clear whose reputation took a bigger hit today. >> as we've heard this morning, america's farms are far too depent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables. the obvious answer is to stop eating fruits and vegetables and if you look at recent obesity statistics, many have already started. >> it didn't stop at capitol hill. harry reid and sharon engel supporters broke out into a full on brawl at a local christian school. plus, the republican pledge to america. what does it really mean? some say it's designed to get votes and change nothing. some on the left say it's nothing more than a smoke screen to disguise radical ideas. and the comeback kid with another comeback. bill clinton may be the go-to guy president obama needs to save him and his party. ask yourself this. ho
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop
discussed the lack of accessibility to good schools. used his own family as an example. >> given my position, if i wanted to find a great public school for malia and sasha to be in, we could probably maneuver to do it but the broader problem is for a mom or a dad who are working hard but don't have a bunch of connections. >> you know, the president also actually said some negative things about the d.c. public school system and in just minutes new york city mayor michael bloomberg joins tom brokaw on the plaza in rockefeller plaza to discuss the state of the education system. stay tuned for live coverage of that. >> the president hopes a plane for new mexico to visit four states in four days. part business, part politics and includes a big rally on a college campus designed to recapture some of the 2008 obama campaign magic. cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood joins us now. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. >> what do we expect? i understand it's a big college rally in wisconsin tomorrow and then just kind of a throwback to 2008, satellite watching . . . . >> i

saying we can't do this without tenure. that's what allows us to stand up to principals getting things wrong. yo younger teachers saying the union protects me enough. fabulous exchange. >> it was. >> those teachers shared, there were teachers in the audience who agreed more with you than they might agree with someone else. and then there were teachers who were very protective of the union as you might expect but i think those two hours illuminated -- >> i hope you were joking about me being a union barber. i'm absolutely not but i don't think you can go up to harlem or the south bronx or you're working in a school, especially, though, in new york where we have charters, public charters that work and you have unions that are placing caps on it and seeing kids trapped in the south bronx and harlem and brooklyn. i don't know how you don't look at that situation and say, it's immoral. >> well, the unions aren't controlling the outcomes here. now, they have a concern that is legitimate which is -- this is a historic concern and all educational systems is where are the resources going? we us

on colbert. how about that? >> good morning. on the set with us this thursday morning, national political correspondent for new york magazine john heilemann. >> hi. >> who is the author of "game change." let me just say he feels like talking this morning. >> he does. >> okay? and then we have got msnbc political analyst harold ford jr. who is the author of owner more daves than goliaths." you had a party last night. >> look at the flowers harold brought. >> it was two nights ago. those are the ones from digger. >> those are from a grave. that's right. did you ever try that? >> huh-uh. >> what digger does? he takes flowers off of graves and gives them to girls. >> my family is in the funeral business. we would call that bad form. >> maybe just a tad bit. >> that's how he got dates in college. he said he would get flowers from the funeralhome. >> okay. it's not right. >> bless his hard. >> also with us in washington msnbc political analyst pat buchanan. >> patrick! >> good morning. >> happy fall. how are you doing? >> doing just fine. >> the pat is back. >> the pat is back. >> i've missed h
all of us and we hated him. again, it was so ugly. but, i always think -- you talk about james madison's vision for how it's supposed to work. even when you have people going like this, or maybe because you have people going like this, balanced the budget four years in a row, first time since the 1920s. welfare reform, two successful military campaigns, 22 million new jobs. a lot of different things. so yesterday the idea of the interview was we were going to figure out if bill clinton were president, what would he do to get this economy started? i would suggest the most important thing to talk about and, of course, he didn't disappoint, did he? >> no, he didn't. >> brilliant responses. and yet the rest of the day we were savaged. i was savaged with why didn't you bring up monica? why didn't you bring up impeachment. and then the left, why were you so critical of barack obama? which i wasn't. but does this none, jon meacham suggest what's wrong with this country? everybody, all the adults at least are focussed on how do we get the economy started again. how do we grow jobs. these harsh
reports are that the first suspect was using an automatic weapon. >> yeah, that initial report, thomas, now, again, we don't have that from law enforcement. so t could be anywhere from what you and i know to be a semiautomatic pistol all the way up to something like an automatic rifle, for example, an ak-47. we just don't know right now. what we do know is that this first individual, evidentally was making some kind of statement first by firing these rounds and, unfortunately, we said he fired them in the area, didn't shoot at anyone in particular but he turned the weapon on himself and killed himself. this second person he was allegedly seen with was that a friend or just another student or could that be another gunman? well, on that campus they just can't take the chance. right now you have this major search going on and you've got 50,000 students plus faculty and staff either hunkered down, locking themselves in place or being told to stay away from campus until this is resolved. >> clint, we'll ask you to stick with us throughout the hour as we get more information on this breaking

states. but ask yourself this, how appropriate is it clinton to backseat driving obama when he used to bristle the same thing happening to him in 1994. also, finish the following sentence. the tea party is "a," tearing apart the republican party or "b"," energizing the gop and opening up an enthusiasm gap. with democrat, the answer may tell us a lot and wait until you hear what eliot spitzer has to say about the fellow democrat who wants his old job, andrew cuomo. but that's in "the sideshow." host "face to face" on our nbc stations in nevada. and the politics editor for msnbc.com, von berger. look, we got to start with what happened on capitol hill. here's an exchange between michigan congressman john conyers and stephen colbert today. let's listen. >> i'm asking you to leave the committee room completely and submit your statement instead. >> i'm here at the invitation of the chairwoman and if she'd like me to remove myself from the hearing room, i'm theme do so. >> that is correct. >>s that fair enough. >> von, let me start with you. you've been doing this as long as i have. watch
's tracie potts has more for us from washington. good morning to you. >> good morning. no decision on taxes. democratic leaders on both sides of congress said they would adjourn without dealing with that issue whether or not to extend the bush tax cuts past the end of this year. the house barely made it out, though, by one vote in what ended up being a referendum on taxes. after an impassioned speech by house minority leader john boehner, 39 democrats agreed with him but in the end decided to leave washington without dealing with that issue. but there was a flurry of activity on several other fronts. a nasa bill passed that will deal with the future of that program. major changes. it appears the shuttle and space station programs. also the house agreed to pass a bill to provide health care for 9/11 workers, for those who worked down at ground zero. finally, they agreed to a budget stop-gap measure that will allow the government to continue operating past today, which is the end of the fiscal year. so now lawmakers head home and they're dealing with an angry electorate just weeks before nove
